Biosecurity Training

New Zealand importers must operate an Approved Transitional Facility to receive, inspect and unpack imported sea containers. All Transitional Facilities must have trained and certified personnel who manage or undertake the different aspects of biosecurity.

There have been some recent changes to training requirements that you might not be aware of. These include changes to the frequency of training and a more in-depth course for Transitional Facility Operators. Implementing these changes have required all Training Providers to change registration, training and certification processes. Please keep an eye out for our training emails and updates, and if you have any questions please email training(at)ivs.co.nz or call 0800 021 169

MPI Accredited Person (AP) Training
